Perhaps the only offense in Detroit being talked about more than that of the Lions is that of the Tigers, who begin their playoff series with the Oakland A’s this Friday. Bush, a baseball fan, said he will be going to one of the games in Detroit – either Monday or Tuesday, game three or four of the series – and that it will be the first Tigers game he has attended.
“I look forward to going to the game and seeing those guys knock some out of the park, see the pitchers do their thing,” Bush said. “I’m excited. I think they’re going to play well. Hopefully they go all the way.”
Growing up, Bush did not enjoy such a prosperous baseball franchise. He said he was unfortunately – his words – a fan of the San Diego Padres.
“We didn’t win anything,” Bush said, laughing. “Growing up as a kid, the last time they were good is when they had Tony Gwynn, even going back before him Fred McGriff. It always seemed like, like that the Padres had good players but they would like let them go to other teams and that those guys would go on to be great players, so the Padres, we struggled, they struggled for a while.”
